The Power of the Blogosphere?

Posted by Hello

The above picture apparently came from a tiny Iraqi insurgency webpage which indicated that if iraqi prisoners were not released, the soldier would be killed. Bloggers are speculating whether or not the above photo is actually a hoax. Namely, a poised G.I. Joe action figure. The photo below shows remarkably striking similarities, even including knee pads. Drudge has a quote from the manufacturer of the toy who is convinced that it is a toy.

Hopefully, this really is a hoax. If it is, it shows the very power and speed to which the blogosphere can gather information. From what Ive read, no one is declaring that it is a hoax, but those on the blogosphere are the only ones demanding it receive closer scrutiny.

Apparently the US has just released a statement that no US soldiers are missing.

So happy this has more than likely turned out to be a hoax. Doing some recon right now, getting ideas for my site. I'm new to the blog world, http://civilcoldwar.blogspot.com. Your website is squared away, even though you're on the other team. Take it easy. Semper Fidelis
